Gas Standards from liquids
Today more and more analytical laboratories require calibration standards from compounds which are liquid at room temperature. Aromatics such as Benzene, Toluene, and Xylene (BTX), along with many other organic solvents or Siloxane can be difficult to acquire.
GasMix™ LiqMix is perfect for these applications: it can evaporate a liquid standard in a controlled way into a gas stream, providing the ability for lab personnel to generate a range of standards at different concentrations.
- Calibration curves for each used gas
- Heated line up to the analyzer
- Reduced operator time
- Unique solution
- Return on Investment in less than one year
Application spotlight: Biogas Valorization
Siloxanes are transformed into silicon oxides at high temperature. These oxides are very hard materials which can damage the metal surfaces of an engine. Gas chromatography is used to evaluate the efficiency of a siloxane remover process. The analyzer must be calibrated and gas standards containing Siloxanes are not commercially available. LiqMix is used to vaporize octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (D4) which is liquid at room temperature.
